Amazing Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes

These amazing Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes are perfectly seasoned and includes peppers and onions.  This is a great flavorful side for any morning meal!

It’s no secret that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Since we have been indoors a lot for the past year, I have been trying to recreate my favorite dishes at home.

One of my all time favorite things to do is go to a local NYC diner and have breakfast anytime. As a mom, it can be really really nice to have someone serve YOU for a change.

I wanted to recreate that experience at home, I had never made breakfast potatoes before–I’d often buy them frozen in a bag from Trader Joe’s.

These potatoes were insanely easy to make and became an instant part of the breakfast rotation. Peel the potatoes, add some seasoning, chop up some peppers and onions and within a few minutes you have got a yummy breakfast dish.

It’s no secret how much I love to make potatoes in my air fryer! Check out some of these air fryer potato recipes that I have shared previously:

Where do I serve these air fryer potatoes?

Breakfast is a great place to start! Once I have these in the air fryer I tend to get started on the bacon and the eggs, so that everything is ready at the same time! Plus these are great for those nights when you want to have brinner (breakfast for dinner). 🙂

Enjoy and let me know how much you love them!
